Another fine series. I sure wish I could visit your area. Your hiking buddies have that very satisfied look of those that have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Do you keep them leashed when you are moving? Since at least one of them is a hunting dog it's probably not a bad idea, but I used to enjoy letting my slow-moving Golden loose. He wouldn't wander - 30 seconds was about as long as he could tolerate not having me in sight, and he so enjoyed being able to patter through the shallow streams, when I would prefer to keep my boots dry.

Jelpee - Thanks for your kind words! I almost missed your comment - you are too fast for me! Be sure to let me know when you come visit!!

Frogfish - The biggest (black & white) dog is usually the toad "culprit" - although the brown & white one did eat a rare butterfly last spring... Yes, our dogs love any hike, and do get to hike very often!

Harriet - The littlest dog is just visiting (one of my daughters brought her dog along on this hike). I used to let mine run off-leash on some of our longer hikes, but the bigger one is not very good at coming back when called, and the smaller one is much too interested in bears. So we keep them leashed all the time on hikes now. They do get a good run (4-6 miles) on leash about every day anyway...

Mole I am beginning to feel quite at home on Roan Mt., thanks to you and your fine photos.

Seeing it from my computer I find the elevation not at all bothersome. LOL

Great series!

Lou

Lou - Glad you found the hike to be an easy one!! (It really can be an easy hike, depending on where you start it...) Hope to be out at the Roan again soon - maybe tomorrow!

Mole, wonderful series, as usual. I had a dog that tried to eat a toad once, and he really regretted it! He retched and gagged and foamed at the mouth for nearly an hour. I am especially taken with the photos of the metamorphic rocks. I assume the etched lines are differential weathering of the various layers.

Awesome pictures!!! My favorite is the one with the angelica against the mountains, and then those last three views are tied as a close second. And of course, the dogs that is one of the best pictures of them ever.

That was a great day

MtnMan - Thanks! Yes, those lines do represent differential weathering. My geologist daughter could probably give you a better & more detailed explanation...

Hey Blue Sky - thanks for stopping by to comment! Glad you enjoyed these (and the hike even more!!)
